line with the outer extreme of Cape Collinson N. b W. W.; the N.W. point of Beat fort Island is just shut in behind the rocky islet to the Southward of Cape D'Aguilar S. W. Southerly; and Cape D'Aguilar Lighthouse bears S. b W. 2 W., 8§ cables' length. This rock is marked by a buoy painted chequered black and white.

  Vessels wishing to pass between Bokhara Rock and the Island of Hongkong should, if passing outside Tathong Rock, bring the summit of Beaufort Island in line with Cape D'Aguilar S.S.W., and steer with that mark on until Tathong Rock is in line with the left extreme of Taitoo Island N. W., when these objects should be kept in transit until abreast of Cape D'Aguilar. If passing inside the Tathong Rock, the last named mark should be brought in line as soon as convenient after passing through the channel between that rock and Hongkong Island. Vessels passing outside the Bokhara Rock, should not bring Tathong Rock to the Northward of Pottinger Peak N.W. N. until the Southern extreme of Tytam Peninsula is open of Cape D'Aguilar.

  It being customary now at Hongkong for steamers of great length to leave the harbor by that channel towards which their heads are directed at the moment of weighing, in order to avoid the detention necessary in turning a long ship in a narrow passage, the channel between the islands of Putoy and Sunkong has been examined in order that vessels bound to the South-westward proceeding out of harbor through the Lyemun Pass may avoid the necessity of rounding Waglan Island.

The channel was found free from danger and has soundings of 15 to 20 fathoms mud in it. For steamers bound to the South-westward coming out through the Lyemun Pass, the shortest and best way appears to be to use the channel Westward of the Tathong and Bokhara Rocks, the marks for which have been already given; and after passing Cape D'Aguilar keep in mid channel between Putoy and Sunkong Islands, rounding the South end of the former island at about a distance of half a mile. By adopting this channel, they will avoid altering course beyond a point or two.

  A new Dock being in course of construction at Kowloon, opposite Stone Cutters' Island, the channel between that island and Kowloon has been examined. It appears to have shoaled somewhat since the original survey in 1841, as there is now not more than 18 feet at low water anywhere in the passage.

line with the outer extreme of Cape Collinson N. b W. W.; the N.W. point of Beat fort Island is just shut in behind the rocky islet to the Southward of Cape D'Aguilar S. W. Southerly; and Cape D'Aguilar Lighthouse bears S. b W. 2 W., 8§ cables' length. This rock is marked by a buoy painted chequered black and white.

  Vessels wishing to pass between Bokhara Rock and the Island of Hongkong should, if passing outside Tathong Rock, bring the summit of Beaufort Island in line with Cape D'Aguilar S.S.W., and steer with that mark on until Tathong Rock is in line with the left extreme of Taitoo Island N. W., when these objects should be kept in transit until abreast of Cape D'Aguilar. If passing inside the Tathong Rock, the last named mark should be brought in line as soon as convenient after passing through the channel between that rock and Hongkong Island. Vessels passing outside the Bokhara Rock, should not bring Tathong Rock to the Northward of Pottinger Peak N.W. N. until the Southern extreme of Tytam Peninsula is open of Cape D'Aguilar.

  It being customary now at Hongkong for steamers of great length to leave the harbor by that channel towards which their heads are directed at the moment of weighing, in order to avoid the detention necessary in turning a long ship in a narrow passage, the channel between the islands of Putoy and Sunkong has been examined in order that vessels bound to the South-westward proceeding out of harbor through the Lyemun Pass may avoid the necessity of rounding Waglan Island.

The channel was found free from danger and has soundings of 15 to 20 fathoms mud in it. For steamers bound to the South-westward coming out through the Lyemun Pass, the shortest and best way appears to be to use the channel Westward of the Tathong and Bokhara Rocks, the marks for which have been already given; and after passing Cape D'Aguilar keep in mid channel between Putoy and Sunkong Islands, rounding the South end of the former island at about a distance of half a mile. By adopting this channel, they will avoid altering course beyond a point or two.

  A new Dock being in course of construction at Kowloon, opposite Stone Cutters' Island, the channel between that island and Kowloon has been examined. It appears to have shoaled somewhat since the original survey in 1841, as there is now not more than 18 feet at low water anywhere in the passage.

THE HONGKong GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 30TH JANUARY, 1875.

  The rate of Mortality for every thousand persons during 1874, among the British and Foreign Community, was 32.23, and amongst the Chinese 31.19; while for the whole Population of the Colony the rate was 31.24 for every thousand persons.

  It is necessary, however, that I should place on record here an explanation of this unusually high rate of Mortality. It arises from the number of Deaths which occurred during the Typhoon of the 22nd-23rd September. There was registered during the 3rd and 4th Quarters a total of 941 Deaths which were attributed to the calamity to which I have referred, and of these, 924 were among Chinese, and the remainder (17) among British and Foreigners.

  Deducting these numbers from those already given, it will appear that the rate of Mortality among the British and Foreign Community is reduced to 29.59 and among the Chinese Population to 23.19. The rate for the whole Population will then stand at 23.53. The rate for 1873 was 22.57 for every thousand persons.

  I annex a Return shewing the prevailing diseases, resulting in Death, which afflicted the Colony during the year under review.

A CHINESE AND ENGLISH DICTIONARY,

BY

THE REVD. W. LOBSCHEID.

HE above work, which has been chiefly com- piled for the purpose of aiding students in the study of Chinese literature, comprises many characters not met with in any of the Dictionaries hitherto published.

The selection of between 8,000 and 9,000 cha- racters will make it comparatively easy to find a character without counting the strokes of the compound figures, (minus the radical), and the addition of the Synonyms will prov? a great help to such as are anxious to acquaint themselves more minutely with the character of the lan- guage.

The work contains 584 Imperial Octavo Pages and is neatly bound in cloth.

PRICE $8 per Copy.

The selection of between 8,000 and 9,000 cha- racters will make it comparatively easy to find a character without counting the strokes of the compound figures, (minus the radical), and the addition of the Synonyms will prov? a great help to such as are anxious to acquaint themselves more minutely with the character of the lan- guage.

THE above work, which has been chiefly com- piled for the purpose of aiding students in the study of Chinese literature, comprises many characters not met with in any of the Dictionaries hitherto published.

The selection of between 8,000 and 9,000 cha- racters will make it comparatively easy to find a character without counting the strokes of the compound figures, (minus the radical), and the addition of the Synonyms will prove a great help to such as are anxious to acquaint themselves more minutely with the character of the lan- guage.

The work contains 584 Imperial Octavo Pages and is neatly bound in cloth.

2. The returns show a decrease of crime to the extent of 22.96 per cent on all cases reported, or of 11.47 per cent in serious crimes, and 25.45 in minor offences: as has always been the practice the percentage has been calculated on the number of cases reported, and not on the number of prisoners. 3 Two cases of murder occurred, for one of which on British Kowloon four men were sentenced to death, but this penalty was commuted to Penal Servitude for life.

bers two hundred persons, of whom scarcely a moiety are Chinese. There appears to be little reason why the executions here, as in England, should not take place in one of the yards of the Gaol and, if deemed necessary, in the presence of the convicts.

5. In my Report for 1873, I alluded to the decrease of Piracy, but remarked that it would be very imprudent for European sailing vessels to rely on immunity from attack, and to sail unarmed, until it was known what would become of the men thrown out of employ by the closing of the Macao Barracoons. In 1874, no European sailing vessel was attacked, but the steamer Spark was, on the 22nd of August, captured by Pirates on her way from Canton to Macao; and the result of the want of proper precautions having been taken for the safety of the crew, and the protection of the vessel, was painfully shown. The Captain and five others were murdered, and one European pas- senger, and five others of the crew were seriously wounded, whilst the Pirates retained possession of, and plundered the vessel for five hours. One of the head-pirates was arrested in this Colony, and executed. At Canton six Pirates were executed, one died of wounds received at his capture, and two others were in November last waiting in prison the result of further inquiries. In addition to the above, five men were arrested in Hongkong, but released for want of sufficient evidence; and here I may remark that I can remember no case in which the malefactors were seen by so many people, and yet so much difficulty experienced in obtaining testimony. Notwithstanding the efforts of the Authorities at Macao, where the passengers chiefly lived, those who were capable of giving valuable information maintained a steady indifference to the matter, and pretended a difficulty in being able to identify men who were for five hours in their company. The Chinese Authorities. applied for the arrest and rendition of two other men for the same offence. The arrests were effected, and the prisoners committed for trial at the Supreme Court, but the witnesses failed to appear; the investigation however before the Magistrate threw great doubts on the guilt of the ac- cused. In each of two other cases classed as piracies three men were arrested, and on application given up to the Chinese Authorities for trial.

6. As might have been expected from the cessation of the emigration of Chinese coolies from Macao the number of cases of kidnapping of that class has greatly diminished. In 1873, this Government, passed an Ordinance for the better protection of Chinese women and children. A number of cases arise from the breach of this Ordinance, more especially as Chinese custom permits the buying, and selling of women and children.

There is every reason to suppose that this Ordinance has a deterrent effect, but it will be some time before the lower classes of Chinese women, accustomed as they are to such practices in China, learn to avail themselves of the protection offered. One defect in the Ordinance has already come to light in the investigation of cases, which is that no section applies to those where a sale has already taken place.

7. With reference to Burglary and Larceny in dwelling houses during the night time, in the past year the European Community has been very free from such attacks. Out of six cases reported, three occurred in British Kowloon; in two other cases, a door or a venetian blind was left open, and in the third a false key was used. The whole property stolen in these six cases was valued at $268.00. A very dangerous gang of burglars who attacked outlying Chinese houses was captured in August last, and eight of them were convicted.

8. In the month of September, a Typhoon of unusual force passed over the Colony, and caused a great deal of work to be thrown on the Police. The number of those killed was so great that the Government Contractor for the removal of dead bodies was, after the first day, wholly unable to fulfil his contract. But, with the aid of Convicts, the Police assisted at the removal or burial of nearly 650 corpses.

9. I enclose a list of men who have been arrested during the past year for breach of Conditional Pardon or Deportation Warrant.

10. The state of the Police Force is similar to that reported last year. The Inspectors continue to work faithfully, and steadily, and as a body the men have behaved very well. I am glad to be able to record that the cases of drunkenness are fewer in number. The exception to the general rule of good behaviour has been in the conduct of some of the Chinese Water Police, six of whom committed offences against the Criminal Law.

11. I have the honor to enclose the following Returns:-

POLICE SCHOOL,

HONGKONG, 30th January, 1875.

SIR, I have the honour to forward you the Police School Report for 1874. 2. ?s I have only been in charge since the month of June, and as yet have made no changes in the routine work of the School, I have little to report upon beyond giving the Annual Statistics.

 3. Since assuming charge, I have made monthly inspections of the Police School on board the Hulk. As the attend- ance is both large and regular, additional assistance is much required.

 4. I beg to suggest that, if possible, the School days for Chinese Constables be increased to three days a week. They form a large proportion of our scholars, and as they study diligently while in School, I am sure they would not consider the additional attendance a hardship. It is seldom that a Lokong asks leave from School.

 5. Four quarterly Examinations for Europeans have been held during the year. Thirty-six obtained certificates ex- empting from School. It is satisfactory to state that some of the men who passed during the year have obtained nearly all the education they had from the School.

 6. I have now great hopes of again starting the Anglo-Chinese Class. As nearly all the Constables have obtained Pass Certificates, I can now bestow greater attention on such a class. Several of the men have expressed a desire to be examined and I intend applying to the Examination Board to hold an Examination at an early date.

 7. At the last quarterly Examination, the Prizes awarded by Government were competed for. The fact that Prizes are now to be given annually has created quite a spirit of emulation and has been productive of much good among the Indian and especially the Chinese.

8. The following are the Tables of Attendance for 1874 :-

(a.) The number of men who have attended during the year is :—

Europeans, Indians, Chinese,

(b.) The average daily attendance is:--

Europeans, Indians, Chinese,...

Gentlemen,-The Directors have now to sub- mit to you a general Statement of the affairs of the Corporation, and Balance Sheet for the half- year ending 31st December last.

The net profits for that period, including $7,042.19 brought forward from last account, after paying all charges and deducting interest paid and due, amount to $119,785.42, of which, after taking out Rebate on Bills not yet due, and Remuneration to Directors, there remains a ba- lance of $109,059.44.

The Directors again regret that they cannot recommend the payment of any Dividend to the Shareholders. The general working of the Bank during the half-year has been unsatisfactory, and, notwithstanding the profit derived from the Chinese Imperial Government Loan, the profits are comparatively small.

The losses and amounts written off require $106,000 of the Profits, together with the $275,000 of the Reserve Fund mentioned in last Report, and a further sum of $400,000 from the same account. The Reserve Fund will thus stand at $100,000, and there will be a balance of Profit of $3,059.44 to be carried to the credit of New Account.

The poor result of the half-year's working is attributable to the bad state of trade in the East; business generally has yielded but little profit and that in Exchange has proved no exception. The demand for advances has been small and the inte- rest obtainable on them consequently low, while the interest paid by the Bank on deposits has been heavy. These deposits are now larger than they ever were, notwithstanding that, more than six months ago, the Directors resolved to receive none at a higher rate of interest than 5 per cent per annum.

The amount now set aside is required as follows:-

For London Accounts, $160,000 80,000 Sterling Bills,. Head Office Accounts,. 180,000 86,000 ,, Sundry Accounts,...........

""

""

$506,000

The $275,000, referred to in the last Report, has been required, as anticipated by the Chairman at last Meeting, chiefly by the Indo-Chinese Sugar Company's account and transactions connected therewith. The Company's estate now stands in the Bank's books at half the value the Bank's Special Agent has placed upon it. the Directors purpose to realize the property with all despatch, and steps have been already taken to that end.

HONGKONG & SHANGHAI BANKING CORPORATION.

N

INETEENTH Report of the Court of Direc- tors to the Ordinary Yearly General Meet- ing of Shareholders to be held at the CITY HALL, Hongkong, on Thursday, the 18th February, 1875.

To the Proprietors of the

HONGKONG & SHANGHAI BANKING CORPORATION.

Gentlemen,-The Directors have now to sub- mit to you a general Statement of the affairs of the Corporation, and Balance Sheet for the half- year ending 31st December last.

The net profits for that period, including $7,042.19 brought forward from last account, after paying all charges and deducting interest paid and due, amount to $119,785.42, of which, after taking out Rebate on Bills not yet due, and Remuneration to Directors, there remains a ba- lance of $109,059.44.

The Directors again regret that they cannot recommend the payment of any Dividend to the Shareholders. The general working of the Bank during the half-year has been unsatisfactory, and, notwithstanding the profit derived from the Chinese Imperial Government Loan, the profits are comparatively small.

The losses and amounts written off require $106,000 of the Profits, together with the $275,000 of the Reserve Fund mentioned in last Report, and a further sum of $400,000 from the same account. The Reserve Fund will thus stand at $100,000, and there will be a balance of Profit of $3,059.44 to be carried to the credit of New Account.

The poor result of the half-year's working is attributable to the bad state of trade in the East; business generally has yielded but little profit and that in Exchange has proved no exception. The demand for advances has been small and the inte- rest obtainable on them consequently low, while the interest paid by the Bank on deposits has been heavy. These deposits are now larger than they ever were, notwithstanding that, more than six months ago, the Directors resolved to receive none at a higher rate of interest than 5 per cent per annum.

""

$506,000

The $275,000, referred to in the last Report, has been required, as anticipated by the Chairman at last Meeting, chiefly by the Indo-Chinese Sugar Company's account and transactions connected therewith. The Company's estate now stands in the Bank's books at half the value the Bank's Special Agent has placed upon it. the Directors purpose to realize the property with all despatch, and steps have been already taken to that end.

56

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 20TH FEBRUARY, 1875.

 The amount placed against London losses is required on account of transactions entered into prior to the present half-year. Although these transactions were known to the Directors at the date of the previous Meeting, they had no reason, from the information then in their possession, to look upon them as bad. Subsequent advices, however, shewed that a considerable amount had to be provided for them, which has now been done.

 The Directors at the last Meeting had hoped to recoup the Bank a portion of the amount then set aside for London losses from Mr. VACHER, the London Manager at that time, as they believed he was possessed of considerable means, but he is unable to meet his own indebtedness (unwarran- tably incurred) to the Bank, and although the Directors have obtained from him an assignment of his available property, they have to provide for a loss on his account. Mr. VACHER is no longer in the Bank's service.

 The losses on Sterling Bills are chiefly due to purchases made previous to the half-year and are now provided for.

 The amount placed against "Head Office accounts" is required for writing off considerable amounts from the value, in the Bank's books, of the Sugar Refinery, the Pier Company's pro- perty and other items, and for deficiencies on current advances during the half-year, securities of all kinds having depreciated greatly in value.

 The sum placed against “Sundry accounts" is required mostly to meet losses on advances made at some of the Branches previous to the half-year.

 Referring to their last Report and to the expec- tations there expressed as to the extent of possible future losses, the Directors greatly regret that their anticipations should have turned out much too sanguine. They cannot, however, close this Report without pointing out, that, although they have been compelled to lay before the Share- holders two successive unfavorable Statements of accounts the general business and position of the Bank continue sound.

Local Committee in London.

 The Directors, under authority of Article 144 of the Deed of Settlement, have now resolved to take immediate steps to appoint a Local Com- mittee in London to supervise the transactions of that Branch.

Inspection.

 Mr. DAVID MCLEAN has been appointed to make a special tour of inspection of the Bank and will be here shortly, but it will be at least two months before he can hand the Directors his Report.

Marine Insurance Account.

 The Balance of this account now amounts to $33,981.06,- -no losses have been sustained during the half-year.

Directors.

 Mr. THOMAS PIKE resigned his seat at the Board, in conformity with the notice he gave at the last General Meeting. Messrs. R. RowETT and S. D. SASSOON also resigned their seats at the Board, on leaving the Colony, and Mr. F. D. SASSOON has been appointed in room of the latter gentleman.

 Mr. ADOLF ANDR? has been appointed Chair- man of the Corporation for the year 1875, vice Mr. W?. H. FORBES, whose term of Office now expires, and Mr. A. F. HEARD has been elected Deputy Chairman.

 In conformity with the provisions of the Deed of Settlement, two Members of the Court, Messrs. ADOLF ANDR? and A. F. HEARD, retire from the direction, but they are eligible for re-election and offer themselves accordingly.

Auditors.

 The accounts have been audited by the Honour- able PHINEAS RYRIE and Mr. F. W. MIT- CHELL, and the Directors have pleasure in recom- mending the re-election of these gentlemen as Auditors for the year 1875.

The selection of between 8,000 and 9,000 cha- racters will make it comparatively easy to find a character without counting the strokes of the compound figures, (minus the radical), and the addition of the Synonyms will prove a great help to such as are anxious to acquaint themselves more minutely with the character of the lan- guage.

MONDAY, 16TH NOVEMBER, 1874.

PRESENT:

The Honorable the Chief Justice (SIR JOHN SMALE).

The Honorable the Colonial Secretary (JOHN GARDINER AUSTIN). The Honorable the Attorney General (JOHN BRAMSTON).

The Honorable RICHARD ROWETT.

ABSENT:

His Excellency Governor SIR ARthur Edward KENNEDY, K.C.M.G., C.B.

The Council meets this day at 2.30 P.M., pursuant to adjournment.

The Honorable the Chief Justice presides, and informs the Council that His Excellency the Governor

is unable to attend owing to ill-health.

The Minutes of the Meeting held on the 13th instant are read, corrected, and confirmed.

The Honorable the Colonial Secretary, by way of a personal explanation, desires to place on record that paragraph 3 of the Honorable PHINEAS RYRIE'S Protest of the 16th instant is not an accurate

statement.

The Honorable the Colonial Secretary reads the following Minute by His Excellency the Governor

regarding the Fire Brigade:-

"The complaints now made against the efficiency and organisation of the Fire Brigade are the first that have come to my knowledge either publicly or privately.

"The Brigade, as at present constituted, was handed down to me by my predecessor as being in a most efficient state, and until the present time I have never heard any other opinion, or of any want of promptitude when its services were required. No fire has occurred during the last two-and-a-half years which was not speedily extinguished.

"Under these circumstances, I have seen no necessity for interfering with an establishment which worked so satisfactorily. And, moreover, as the services rendered by the Brigade were to a great extent voluntary, I deemed interference or new rules to be injudicious and unneces- I know of no shortcoming on the part of the Brigade as a body, nor on the part of those

sary. in charge of it.

"Nevertheless, I shall direct an enquiry as to whether the rules applicable to the Brigade can be amended, and also, with a view to a reduction of the cost, whether the charge to the public bears an equitable proportion to that borne by the Insurance Offices, who derive so large a benefit from the existence of an efficient Fire Brigade.

"I shall be glad to have some specific charge of inefficiency before any steps are taken to disturb a system which has hitherto worked so harmoniously, and, as far as my knowledge extends, efficiently."

On this vote being taken, the Honorable PHINEAS RYRIE moves that this Council begs to recommend to His Excellency the Governor the propriety of obtaining the sanction of the Secretary of State to a grant of ?700, a sum equivalent to one year's salary being made to the children of the late Mr. DOUGLAS, Superintendent of Victoria Gaol. The Honorable Member states that the family of Mr. DOUGLAS, an Officer of nearly twelve years' service, is left in a destitute condition, and it was most desirable that a Government Grant should be made to supplement the private subscriptions which had been raised.

The Honorable the Colonial Treasurer seconds the motion on the understanding that the money, if

granted, should be placed in trust for the children only.

The Council unanimously agrees to the motion.

The Honorable RICHARD ROWETT draws attention to the great and good work done by the Italian

Sisters of Mercy, and moves that the annual grant to them be increased by $600.

The Honorable the Colonial Treasurer explains how the sum now voted is distributed among the Roman Catholic Charitable Institutions in the Colony, and advises that no further grant should be made to any particular Institution without a full enquiry by the Government. Motion withdrawn.

  The following Annual Report on the state of the Government Schools in Hongkong for the Year 1874, is published for general information.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 23rd February, 1875.

No. 17.

J. GARDINER AUSTIN, Colonial Secretary.

HONGKONG, 17th February, 1875.

  SIR,-I have the honour to forward to you the Blue Book Returns and the Annual Report on Education in the Colony for 1874.

2. The total number of scholars taught in the schools which are subject to Government super- vision was 2,563, giving an increase of 283 over the previous year. This increase was not confined to any one class of school, but was general throughout. In the Government Schools, properly so called, there was an increase of 93, and in the schools which receive grants-in-aid there was an increase of 190.

The

3. In the attendance, too, there was a marked increase, the minimum being 126 in advance of 1873. This is the more satisfactory, as the typhoon of the 23rd September last, was at one time supposed to have completely disorganized most of the schools for the remainder of the year. break in the attendance was, however, of comparatively short duration. Where the schoolhouses were demolished, others were rented within a fortnight; and, except in the case of one or two schools, it would hardly have been known by the middle of October, that anything unusual had happened. The Chinese take disaster very stoically, and they are not at all exacting in the matters of comfort and accommodation when they have to shift into temporary quarters.

4. The schoolhouses at Aberdeen, Ap-li Chau, Mong Kok and Yau-m? Ti were completely destroyed, and the masters made very narrow escapes with their lives. The masters at Ap-li Chau and Mong Kok had put the school records in their sleeves when they saw that they must flee; and with these, the only things they could save, they escaped from their falling houses into water which reached to their shoulders. Both men are in very bad health, due doubtless to anxiety and exposure. 5. All the other schoolhouses suffered more or less, but a vacancy of ten days was, in most cases, sufficient to enable the repairs to be made.

  6. The Village Schools supported by Government call for no special remark. The number of scholars advanced from 998 of the previous year to 1,054. The attention of the masters was called at the beginning of the year to the importance of teaching Geography, and the result was very satisfactory The geography of China, to which the teaching for the year was confined, was in one or two cases committed to memory as it stood in the book, and few intelligent answers could be obtained to questions which the book did not contain; but, in the majority of cases the subject was fairly taught and understood. Notwithstanding this, geography is looked upon as an innovation; and, if constant supervision were not exercised, the study would soon disappear from the schools. In the fact that the teaching is, for the present, confined to the geography of the "Eighteen Provinces is to be found the only lever by which the conservatism of the masters could be moved.

"

  7. As soon as a suitable book can be prepared, Arithmetic will be introduced into the schools: but, considering that none of the masters have had any special training in figures, it is perhaps unwise to refer to the experiment. There is no inaptitude on the part of Chinese boys for the study. On the contrary, they advance rapidly in it; but, until trained masters can be got for the schools, it is hopeless to look for real progress in subjects which depart from the beaten track of Chinese school- learning.

8. The question of a Training School for teachers is a very difficult one for Hongkong. If the time were ripe for a revolution against the traditions of centuries, a training school here would serve for the adjoining Province as well as for the Colony; but such an era is too far distant to be seriously thought of. The consequence, therefore, is that, to get an efficient training school, the Colony would have to go to great expense for the training of three or four masters a year, after the first forty or fifty had been made competent. The English schools in the Colony will, some day, pave the way for such an institution; but, at present, they are almost useless for that purpose, as the case of the Aberdeen school will show.

9. It will be recollected that, two years ago, the best scholar at the Central School, who had also been a monitor, was appointed master of this school. His duties were to teach English in the forenoon, and Chinese in the afternoon. After the first six months, the numbers declined rapidly. At the end of the year they gradually increased again; but, by August last, the attendance had become almost nominal, and the master resigned in despair. Another monitor was appointed in his place, and the numbers slowly increased; but twelve months more must decide whether the

experiment is to be continued or not. It may be that the locality was a bad one for the experiment, but it was the only one which was available at the time; and the result has been so unsatisfactory that, if it is necessary to revert to au ordinary Chinese teacher, it will be some time before a similar experiment is attempted elsewhere. This case shows pretty clearly that native masters trained after our ideas of training are not yet wanted in China. Such a fact may be much to be regretted, but such is the fact nevertheless.

 10. The Village Schools which are partly supported by Government have not recently given rise to nuch difficulty. A few of the masters are still discontented with the way in which the villagers carry out their part of the agreement, but the majority are content to let things remain as they are. The attendance increases very slowly, but it does increase; and that is perhaps as much as can be expected of these schools. Some of them, as the one at Ap-li Chau, maintain a high place in the order of efficiency. Others, as the one at Pok-f? Lam, are in anything but a satisfactory con- dition.

 11. The Central School more than maintained its place in point of numbers, in spite of the many difficulties which had to be encountered during the year from the resignation of two and the serious illness of one of the masters. These difficulties have been satisfactorily overcome.

The staff of teachers is complete, and the result of the examinations showed that it is also efficient.

 12. The hopes entertained last year of the early commencement of a new building were entirely frustrated by the typhoon of September. No complaint can, therefore, be made of the delay: but, lest a tacit submission to unforeseen circumstances might imply that the necessity had passed away, a consideration of the condition of the present premises will not be out of place.

13. The existing accommodation is limited to bare sitting room.

Each class-room contains on an average 100 boys, which is as many as can be seated in it. There is thus no means of efficiently working the school. Three or more masters have to teach simultaneously in the same class-room; whereas, with adequate accommodation, classes could be drafted off into side rooms, which would enable the masters to teach in greater quietness, and therefore with greater efficiency.

 14. The present building has no unity of design. At first, four rooms of what was originally a dwelling house were converted into two class-rooms by the removal of the folding doors. Next, a class room was built entirely separate from the main building, and without reference to future neces- sities. Then, another class-roon was built on exactly the same plan. Finally, a third class-room was built between the former ones, but at their expense, as regards ventilation.

There remains no more space for the building of the additional rooms which are required; and, possibly, it is very fortunate that such is the case.

15. In spite of much that has been summer from want of proper ventilation. such as they require is an impossibility.

done, three of the class-rooms are almost unbearable in They are so shut in by adjoining buildings that ventilation

16. To put an additional story on the three lower class-rooms is equally impossible, so insecure are the foundations. The north and west walls have sensibly subsided, and the partition wall between two of the rooms is visibly off the plumb. At the same time, it ought to be clearly stated that there is no immediate danger of an accident; but the effects of the earthquake and typhoon of last year, of the former especially, quite shook all confidence in the permanent stability of the building. An equal strain could not be frequently repeated.

17. Outside the class-room doors and inside the school gates, there is barely standing room for the boys. Two of the upper class-rooms have to be left open during the morning and mid-day intervals. for shelter from sun and rain. This prevents these two rooms from ever having the tidy appearance which class-rooms ought to have.

18. Without further detail, it may thus be taken as proved that the present building is inadequate as regards size, insecure as regards its foundations, and unhealthy as regards ventilation. That being So, further discussion of the question is unnecessary.

19. The Morrison Scholarship, which was referred to last year as being involved in much diffi- culty, may now be considered as settled. Details have yet to be arranged, but no question of principle remains, and the school has already enjoyed the benefit of it. When the scheme for its administration is complete a detailed account of it will be given.

20. The Grant-in-aid schools increased from six to nine, and the number of scholars thereby rose from 442 to 632. One new school was added, and the three Baxter schools, previously classed as one, were in a position to be taken separately. The scheme continues to give satisfaction, and no practical difficulties have arisen in the working of it. The Managers who had grants during the first year of its operation speak favourably of the good which has accrued from it to their schools.

21. The Basel Mission School, which was added to the list last year, has been established for the education of girls whose parents belong to the Mission churches in Hongkong and on the mainland. The girls are boarded at the Mission House, and are thus subject to constant supervision. In addition to instruction in Christianity, they receive through the medium of the Chinese language an ordinary

61

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 27TH FEBRUARY, 1875.

European education during four hours every day, as required by the scheme. After school hours, they are trained in all the branches of Chinese domestic economy, including spinning, sewing, knitting, weaving and cooking. No foreign language is taught. The girls are simply educated for the proper discharge of their duties as wives and mothers in the humble homes from which they come, and to which they return on leaving school. Few institutions carry out their aim more effectually and less ostentatiously than the Basel Mission Girls' School.

  22. There were 62 scholars in the school last year, and the average daily attendance for that period was 50. On the examination day 42 were presented, in Standards ranging from I to V inclu- sive. Out of the number only five failed. The thorough manner in which the work is done may be judged from the following figures. In reading there were no failures, and in writing (from dictation) only one. In arithmetic there were thirteen failures. Twenty were examined in geography and none failed. History, in Standard V, was not taken, and had to be considered a failure, the Manager not having sufficient confidence in the way in which it had been taught.

  23. The results attained in this school are due to the strong teaching power which is employed. In addition to the Chinese Master and his assistant, the Revd. Mr. LOERCHER and Mrs. LOERCHER have their daily duties as teachers during all school hours. It is to them that the school owes its place in the class to which it belongs, and without their superintendence, the present high standard of education and discipline could never have been reached.

  24. The Victoria Boys' School, having had an average daily attendance of 36, was admitted last year to participation in the grant. Twenty-four were eligible for examination, and, of these, twenty passed. As the school has been but a short time in existence, the Third was the highest Standard reached. In reading, there was but one failure; in writing, (from dictation), seven; and, in arith- metic, twelve. The nine presented in Standard III all passed in grammar.

  25. The examination showed that there had been much painstaking bestowed on the teaching. There are few English boys in the school, and English is therefore a foreign language to most of the scholars. This makes the result of the year's work all the more creditable. The greatest difficulty the school has to contend with is irregularity of attendance. If the parents of the boys would insist on more regular attendance, the character of the school would rise in proportion to the benefit their children derive from it. It is unfair that a school should be impeded by an obstacle so easily removable. This point deserves the Manager's most careful attention.

  26. The same remark applies to St. Saviour's Day School, where out of 115 present during the year, and with an average daily attendance of 68, only 44 qualified themselves by attendance for exa- mination. The Manager reports that many of the children are very poor, and no doubt that is a great obstacle to regularity; but, seeing that the education is free, and that only 200 attendances a year are required, the difficulties in the way would be fewer if parents were more careful. Irregularity, however, is not confined to the children of the very poor, and, in such a case, it is inexcusable. Parents should think of the energy which the teachers are expending in vain, from the want of a little more firmness in the treatment of their children. It is very discouraging to the teachers of such a large school as this is to have the standard of their qualifications judged by so small a percentage of

their labour.

  27. The 44 who were examined were ranked from Standard V downwards, the great proportion being in the three lower standards. Eight scholars failed. In reading, grammar and geography, there were no failures; in writing (from dictation) there were 14, and in arithmetic 17. In this school, also, English is a foreign language to the great majority of the boys. The difficulties are therefore great enough without their being added to by irregular attendance.

  28. The London Mission Schools at W?n-tsai and T'?i-p'ing Sh?n had a large increase in numbers, 50 more being enrolled in 1873 than in 1874. These two schools are admirably conducted, the only question about them being whether the masters are not overtaxing their strength by teaching so many. The Manager has the matter under consideration, and probably the number will be limited in future to about 60 each, to the benefit both of schools and of scholars.

  29. Although more scholars were presented for examination at T'?i-p'ing Sh?n than at W?n-tsai, the latter is a far superior school to the former, and consequently gained a larger share of the grant. This is not owing to any inferiority in the T'?i-p'ing Sh?n master, who is perhaps more experienced than the one at W?n-tsai; but, mentally and physically, the scholars at the latter place are superior to those at T'?i-p'ing Sh?n. There is an air of vigour and comfort among the boys of W?n-tsai, while the effects of pinching poverty and neglect are but too visible among those of T'?i-p'ing Sh?n.

  30. From these two schools 122 were sent up for examination. Of these, 28 failed. The fact that at neither school was any scholar examined in Standard I shows how well the schools are taught. At W?n-tsai two scholars were examined in Standard VI and both passed. The highest Standard at T?i-p'ing Sh?n was the Fifth. Three were examined in it, but two of them failed. The failures in separate subjects, were:-in reading, 11; in writing, (from dictation), 20; in repetition, 8; in explan- ation, 11; in composition, 9; and in geography, 7.

  31. St. Stephen's Church School had a very unfortunate change of master in the month of Sep- tember. After his appointment, the school fell off in every way. He entirely neglected his duty. The school had 97 scholars during the year, and the average daily attendance was 68. Only 38 had

62

qualified for examination; and although only 10 of these failed yet 17 of the 28, that is, 61 per cent, had to depend on their copy writing to complete the number of subjects in which they had to pass. The failures in the various subjects, were:-in reading, 1; in writing, (from dictation), 15; in repeti- tion, 15; in explanation, 7 out of 16; in composition, 1 out of 3; and, in geography, all who were examined failed. Standard IV was the highest under which scholars were presented, and all who were examined in it failed.

 32. These are most unfortunate results for this school, which gave such promise of better things during the first 18 months of its existence. All that can be done to retrieve the past has been done. The master forfeited his proportion of the grant, and he was dismissed by the Manager at the close of the

year.

 33. The Baxter Vernacular Girls' Schools in Sai Ying-p'?n, Staunton Street, and T'?i-p'ing Sh?n, advanced sufficiently in numbers to be taken separately, the average daily attendance for the year being 21, 27 and 32 respectively. From the three 56 came up for examination, and only 10 failed. The Staunton Street school took Standards I to IV inclusive. The other two were examined in the first three. The failures in separate subjects were, for all the schools: in reading 10; in writing 12; in repetition 4; in explanation 10; and in Geography 1.

 34. It is unnecessary to add anything to the favourable report given of these schools last year. They are advancing steadily in numbers and efficiency, and they are gaining rapidly in popular

estimation.

 This calculation is only useful as regards each school taken by itself. It does not afford a just measure of comparison between the several schools, on account of the different classes in which they are placed, a Standard in one class of schools marking a very different degree of scholarship from the corresponding Standard for schools of another class.

36. The Scheme under which these nine schools receive grants-in-aid, was published in the Government Gazette on the 26th April, 1873, and carried into effect immediately after. By it deno- minational schools are enabled to receive assistance from the Government without losing their re- ligious character, and the Government can give its assistance to schools of all denominations without interfering in any way with their religious teaching. A grant is not given to a school for general proficiency but for definite results, as ascertained by the individual examination of the scholars. During four hours of each day, the instruction has to be confined to secular subjects; but during the rest of the day, the teaching may be religious, or secular, or both, at the option of the Manager. Before a scholar can be examined he must have attended school on at least 200 days in the year during the four hours a day devoted to unsectarian instruction. On satisfying that con- dition he is examined in the Standard for which his teacher considers him qualified, with this limitation that he can never be examined again in the same or in a lower Standard.

37. The only peculiarity of the scheme as applied to the Colony is the number of classes of schools which had to be made to suit its peculiar requirements. In other respects it is substantially the same as similar schemes in operation elsewhere. It will be found as an Appendix to this Report.

38. It only remains to be stated that the School Book Committee have now published their Primer and Books I and II of the series which they were appointed to compile. The Third Book is almost ready for the printer, and the whole series will probably be complete in twelve months from this date. In the early part of the year the work of the Committee was much retarded by a variety of causes; but, if nothing unforeseen occurs, they will now be able to prosecute their labours uninterruptedly to the end.

required by this code.

(c.) The appointment of a teacher, provided he is competent.

purposes of the Standards hereafter to be referred to.

ment, sign the Receipt for the grant, and furnish all Returns which the Government may require.

5. In the case of Chinese schools not under European supervision, the Inspector will be Manager when necessary.

  6. The Government will not bind itself to give grants to all schools claiming them under the foregoing conditions, but will be guided by the circumstances of each case, and by the amount of money at its disposal for educational purposes. In all cases where a grant is refused, the reasons for the refusal will be given.

  7. The Government will reserve to itself the power to withdraw or reduce grants. In all cases, the reasons for the withdrawal or reduction will be given.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 27TH FEBRUARY, 1875.

An Ordinance enacted by the Governor of Hongkong, with the advice of the Legislative Council thereof, to render personation with intent to deprive any person of any property felony.

HEREAS it is expedient to amend the law relating to personation: Be it enacted by the Governor of Hong- kong, with the advice of the Legislative Council thereof, as follows:-

Title.

Preamble.

I. If any person shall falsely and deceitfully personate any Personation person, or the heir, executor, or administrator, wife, widow, in order to next of kin, or relation of any person, with intent fraudulently obtain pro- to obtain any land, estate, chattel, money, valuable security, perty to be or property, he shall be guilty of felony, and upon conviction [37 & 38 shall be liable, at the discretion of the Court by which he is Vic., cap. convicted, to be kept in penal servitude for life, or for any 36, § 1.] period not less than three years, or to be imprisoned for any term not exceeding two years, with or without hard labor, and with or without solitary confinement.

II. Nothing in this Ordinance shall prevent any person from Saving. being proceeded against and punished under any other Or- [Ibid, § 2.] dinance, or at Common Law, in respect of an offence (if any) punishable as well under this Ordinance as under any other Ordinance, or at Common Law.

III. This Ordinance may be cited for all purposes as "The Short title. False Personation Ordinance, 1874."

Statement of Objects and Reasons.

This Ordinance is a transcript of a recent Act of the Imperial Parliament 37 and 38, Vic., cap. 36. It simplifies the mode of proceeding in cases of fraudulent personation, and increases the punishment on conviction.

The only difference between this Ordinance and the Imperial Act, is in the minimum of penal servitude-the Act fixes it at five years, and the maximum of imprisonment at two years with nothing between-the Ordinance proposes the same scale of punishment as for other felonies.

Hongkong, 8th December, 1874.

He shall, upon conviction thereof in a summary way before a Magistrate, be liable to forfeit and pay a sum not exceeding two hundred dollars, or to be imprisoned with or without hard labor for any term not exceeding six months, together with for- feiture of all pay during such imprisonment.

IV. This Ordinance may be cited for all purposes as The Naval Yard Police Ordinance, 1875."

Statement of Objects and Reasons.

This Ordinance is introduced at the request of the Naval Authorities, who are about to renew the engagements entered into with the Police employed at the Naval Yard, and desire to have the power of enforcing discipline as here provided.

The second section gives to the Officer in charge of the Yard similar powers to those of the Captain' Superintendent in respect of the Colonial Police Force; and the third section, which is almost a transcript of a section in the Police Act, subjects the members of the force to the same penalties as the Colonial Police are liable to for neglect of duty or other misconduct.

Hongkong, 16th February, 1875.

JOHN BRAMSTON, Attorney General.

An Ordinance enacted by the Governor of Hongkong, with the Advice of the Legislative Council thereof, for the better Protection of Chinese Women and Female Children, and for the Repression of certain Abuses in relation to Chinese Emigration.

[

1875.]

HEREAS it is expedient to make better provision for the punishment of persons guilty of selling, purchasing, or decoying into the Colony, or unlawfully detaining therein Chinese women and female children for the purpose or prostitution, and of decoying Chinese into or away from this Colony for the purpose of emigration, or for any other purpose whatsoever: Be it enacted by the Governor of Hongkong, with the advice of the Legislative Council thereof, as follows:-

1. Any punishment incurred or to be incurred for any offence

committed before this Ordinance comes into operation. 2. Any proceedings for enforcing such punishment or pro- secuting the offender; and all such proceedings may be had and taken as if the said Ordinance were still in force.

II. Whosoever shall bring, lead, take, decoy, or entice into the Colony any woman or female child with intent to sell her for the purpose of prostitution, or shall sell or purchase any woman or female child for the purpose aforesaid, or shall knowingly derive any profit from the sale or purchase of any woman or female child so sold or purchased as aforesaid, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, and on conviction thereof, shall be liable to the punishments here- inafter provided.

III.

Statement of Object and Reasons.

Such

The Ordinance No. 6 of 1873 was passed in order to check, by Penal Legislation, the practice of buying and selling women and girls for prostitution and their detention or abduction for the like purposes. There is reason to believe that the Ordinance has done good service in the matter, and has dimi- nished these abuses: but its language seems not to meet the case of women or girls purchased out of the Colony for the purpose of prostitution and brought here to be shipped to California, or elsewhere; unless the women or girls complain of being detained in this Colony against their will. complaints have been exceedingly rare, and proof of forcible detention difficult to obtain; although there is no moral doubt that females are purchased out of the Colony, and after a few days' residence here are shipped to various places to be- come prostitutes. This Ordinance in the third and sixth sections aims at meeting these cases, and makes it a misde- meanour for any person to bring into the Colony any woman or girl knowing her to have been purchased for prostitution, or with the like knowledge to receive or harbour any such woman or girl. The rest of the Ordinance is almost a reprint of the Ordinance No. 6 of 1873, which for the sake of convenience is repealed and re-enacted with the two additional sections.

BY

THE REVD. W. LOBSCHEID.

E above work, which has been chiefly com- piled for the purpose of aiding students in the study of Chinese literature, comprises many characters not met with in any of the Dictionaries hitherto published.

The selection of between 8,000 and 9,000 cha- racters will make it comparatively easy to find a character without counting the strokes of the compound figures, (minus the radical), and the addition of the Synonyms will prove a great help to such as are anxious to acquaint themselves more minutely with the character of the lan- guage.

The work contains 584 Imperial Octavo Pages and is neatly bound in cloth.

HE above work, which has been chiefly com-

the study of Chinese literature, comprises many characters not met with in any of the Dictionaries hitherto published.

The selection of between 8,000 and 9,000 cha- racters will make it comparatively easy to find a character without counting the strokes of the compound figures, (minus the radical), and the addition of the Synonyms will prove a great help to such as are anxious to acquaint themselves more minutely with the character of the lan- guage.

The work contains 584 Imperial Octavo Pages and is neatly bound in cloth.

ABSENT:

His Excellency Governor SIR ARTHUR EDWARD KENNEDY, K.C.M.G., C.B.

The Council meets this day at 2.30 P.M., by Special Summons.

The Honorable the Colonial Secretary announces that His Excellency the Governor is unable to attend. The Honorable the Chief Justice takes the chair.

The Minutes of the Council held on the 16th November, 1874, are read and confirmed.

The Honorable the President refers to the death of L. D'ALMADA E CASTRO, Esq., its sad circum- stances, and his long service, both under the Superintendency of Trade, which was formerly vested in the Governor of Hongkong, and as Clerk of Councils.

The Honorable Speaker dwells at length on Mr. D'ALMADA's high qualifications, zeal, discretion, and conduct of business, and moves as follows:-"That this Council greatly regrets the death of LEONARDO D'ALMADA E CASTRO, Esquire, the oldest public Servant in this Colony, who having in 1836 entered the service of the Crown in the Office of the Superin- tendency of British Trade in China, was, since May, 1847, Clerk of the Councils and First Clerk in the Office of the Colonial Secretary. This Council cordially records its high estimate of his public services in these important Offices, the duties of which he has discharged faithfully and with great ability, assiduity and discretion; and, expressing its appreciation of the private worth of the deceased, it offers its condolence to his Widow and family,

The Honorable JAMES WHITTALL, seconds the motion, and supports the statements of the Chief Justice

as to Mr. D'ALMADA's official worth and exemplary character.

The motion is put and carried unanimously.

The Honorable the Colonial Secretary expresses his complete concurrence in all that has been said about the late Mr. D'ALMADA, whom he describes as a man of pleasant, quiet, gentlemanly manners, at all times willing to impart any information sought from him, diligent and accurate in the discharge of his duties, and taking a lively interest in them; having a retentive memory and being in consequence a very dictionary of public events, transactions, and correspondence received during an official career of 38 years. He also explains that in 1842, on the cession

THE HONGKong goveRNMENT GAZETTE, 13TH MARCH, 1875.

of this Island, a Superannuation Fund was formed, to which Mr. D'ALMADA had subscribed $3,260, and in the struggle to do so had deprived his family of the means of living, without deriving the smallest benefit from the Fund. In another Colony, under similar circumstances the proceeds of the Fund had been set aside as a provision for the Widows and Children of Officers, and considering the destitute condition of the Widow and Daughter of Mr. D'ALMADA, the Honorable the Colonial Secretary considers that a monthly provision from the Colonial Revenue should be made for them. Their unfortunate position has not arisen from im- providence on the part of the late Mr. D'ALMADA, but from his investments having turned out badly. The Honorable Speaker therefore moves:-"That in consideration of the fidelity, zeal, and efficiency with which the late Mr. D'ALMADA E CASTRO performed the duties of his appointments under this Government during a period of more than 30 years, a Pension at the rate of $150 per month be granted to his Widow and Daughter during their natural lives, $100 thereof being payable to Mrs. D'ALMADA and $50 to her Daughter."

The Honorable PHINEAS RYRIE seconds the motion, corroborating the statements of previous Speakers

as to Mr. D'ALMADA'S estimable character both public and private.

The motion is put and carried unanimously.

Read a first time a Bill, To render personation with intent to deprive any person of any property felony. Read a first time a Bill, To provide means for enforcing good order and discipline in the Police Force

employed in the Royal Naval Yard.

The Honorable the Attorney General briefly explains the objects of and reasons for the Bill. Read a first time a Bill, For the better protection of Chinese Women and Children, and for the repression

of certain abuses in relation to Chinese Emigration.

The Honorable the Attorney General explains wherein the Ordinance No. 6 of 1873 is defective, and the extent of the amendment which the Bill effects.

The Honorable PHINEAS RYRIE then asks the following questions according to notice :-

1. Whether any reply or communication has been received from Her Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for the Colonies regarding a letter addressed to the Executive by a large number of the community complaining of the conduct of the Captain Superintendent of Police during the Typhoon of last September?

2. Whether any reply has been received from Her Majesty's Principal Secretary of State to the Honorable Member's protest against His Excellency the Governor's answer to his complaint, that the Fire Brigade was not summoned or turned out on the occasion above referred to?

3. If replies or communications have been received, how are they worded?

The Honorable the Colonial Secretary states in reply, that he is to inform the Honorable Member

that no instructions have been received to make any communication to him on the subject.

The Honorable Mr. RYRIE objects that his questions have not been answered.

A conversation ensues, in the course of which the Honorable the Colonial Secretary states that no despatch or communication on the subject of the Honorable Member's questions has been received.

The Honorable PHINEAS RYRIE states that he is satisfied.

The Council Chamber is cleared and the Council takes into consideration the draft Jury List for the year commencing March 1st, 1875, which being revised, amended, and the Special Jurors designated, is adopted.

The President adjourns the Council at 4.40 P.M. sine die.

Statement of Objects and Reasons.

The state of the marriage laws of the Colony has been for some time under the consideration of the Government, and has formed the subject of correspondence with the Secretary of State. The draft of this Bill has been submitted to, and has been ap- proved by the Earl of Carnarvon.

The only Ordinance relating to marriages, No. 1 of 1852, enables parties to contract a Civil Marriage before a Marriage Registrar, and provides for the registration of such marriages, but does not affect marriages solemnized by persons in Holy Orders. There is no official record of marriages so solemnised, the register of St. John's Cathedral and of the Roman Catholic Churches being the private property of the Ecclesiastical autho- rities of the two denominations.

The objects of this Ordinance are:

(1.) To provide a General Register of all marriages hereafter to be celebrated in the Colony, without prejudice to the existing Church Registers, if the authorities think fit to continue them as well.

(2.) To place all denominations upon an equal footing in respect to the celebration of marriage, and to enable all competent ministers of all places of public worship to celebrate marriage, when the requirements of the civil power as to notice, &c. have been complied with. At the present time, ministers of religion who are not in Holy Orders can only marry persons belonging to their denomination if a Marriage Registrar be present: and if the formalities prescribed by Ordinance No. 1 of 1852 have been duly performed.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 13TH MARCH, 1875.

With the view of collecting at the Registrar General's Office, the evidence of marriages already celebrated, all existing registers or certified copies are to be delivered to the Registrar General; and for future marriages the certificate of celebration is to be made in duplicate, one copy to be delivered to the parties, and the other sent to the Registrar General.

In order to obtain due publicity of intended marriage, notice is to be given to the Registrar General, and by him publicly exposed: and after three weeks and within three months, he may, if no valid objection is made, issue a certificate authorizing the celebration of the marriage. Power is, however, reserved to the Governor to grant licences dispensing with the length of notice, or even in special cases with all notice.

The Governor is authorized to license places of worship and marriages are only to be celebrated on production of a certifi- cate from the Registrar General, or a licence from the Governor. In framing the Ordinance, regard has been had to similar laws in Ceylon and in the Australian Colonies, and this Ordinance is assimilated in its general principles to those laws, as far as the different circumstances of this Colony would permit.

Power is, however, reserved to the Governor to grant licences dispensing with the length of notice, or even in special cases with all notice.

The Governor is authorized to license places of worship and marriages are only to be celebrated on production of a certifi- cate from the Registrar General, or a licence from the Governor. In framing the Ordinance, regard has been had to similar laws in Ceylon and in the Australian Colonies, and this Ordinance is assimilated in its general principles to those laws, as far as the different circumstances of this Colony would permit.

The selection of between 8,000 and 9,000 cha- racters will make it comparatively easy to find a character without counting the strokes of the compound figures, (minus the radical), and the addition of the Synonyms will prove a great help to such as are anxious to acquaint themselves more minutely with the character of the lan- guage.

No. 19.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 20TH MARCH, 1875.

107

GENERAL POST OFFICE, VICTORIA, HONGKONG, 12th March, 1875. SIR, I have the honor to present to His Excellency J. GARDINER AUSTIN, Administrator of the Government, the fifteenth Annual Report on this Department, being that for the year 1874.

  2. The Comparative Statement of Revenue, which I proceed to record, again shows diminished receipts, and it would be altogether inconsistent, in view of the continued dullness in trade, to have expected a much better result in a year marked as 1874 is with an absence of prosperity.

  3. The alterations of any importance and the events of interest which have taken place in the Postal Service during 1874, are as follows, viz. :—

4. The whole of the Post Office Agencies in China and Japan have been thoroughly inspected, and the result of the examination thereof will be found fully set forth in my Report of the 25th August last, No. 49.

5. Under the provisions of a new Contract with the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company, there has been an acceleration of the outward English Mail Service.

6. The Government of Queensland having entered into a Contract for a Mail Packet Service between Singapore and Brisbane, the correspondence for that Colony, and that for New South Wales, unless specially marked to be forwarded by way of Point de Galle and Melbourne, is now sent vi? Singapore and Torres Straits; correspondence sent from this Colony to Sydney by this route reaches its destination quicker than by the old route via Galle. The correspondence for the Colonies of Victoria, Western Australia, South Australia and Tasmania, except when specially marked to be sent via Torres Strait, is still forwarded vi? Point de Galle, between which place and Melbourne a regular Packet has been established by the Government of Victoria to run once in four weeks, in connection with the British Packets between Suez and Galle; the Mails for New Zealand are sent via Galle only.

7. The second monthly trip, which was formerly performed by the Contractors for the Mail Service with the United States' Post Office between San Francisco, Japan and China, has been omitted during a part of the year; the regular Mail steamers are intended to run only once a month, except when the business interests of the Contractors require an additional steamer, until the new steamers, constructed specially for the purpose, are ready to take their places on the line.

  8. The arrangements for the conveyance of British Mails to and from Japan, consequent upon the Postal Convention between the United States and Japan, are under consideration.

9. The arrangements referred to in my Annual Reports for 1871 and 1872, as to the postage on the correspondence by Private Ships between Hongkong and the Straits Settlements have at length been completed, such correspondence from the 1st January, 1875, is liable to the payment of postage at the place of despatch only.

10. The use of Stamp Duty Adhesive Stamps of Two, Three and Ten Dollars each, which are in disuse for the payment of Stamp Duty, has been authorized for the payment of postage.

11. During the year, Mr. JOHN SIMPSON retired from the Department after about eleven years' service. 12. During the past year, the French Mail Packet Nil, with the local Mails and those from home for Japan; the United States' Mail Packet Japan, with the Mails from Japan and America for Hongkong, Macao, Canton, Swatow, Amoy, Foochow, and Manila, and those for the Straits and India, as well as the private Steamers Sunfoo and Albay, with Mails for Hongkong from the Straits and Manila respectively, and the Mongol and Visayas, with Hongkong Mails for Yokohama and Manila respectively, have been lost. 13. Her Majesty's Government having given at a pepper-corn rent the plot of land at the corner of the Yuen-ming Yuen and Pekin Roads, Shanghai, a suitable Post Office has been erected thereon under the supervision of Mr. R. H. BOYCE of the Board of Works Department, London. The building was completed last month, and the Department entered into occupation of it on the 1st instant, the day upon which the lease of the old premises expired.

14. The following statement shows a decrease in the Gross Revenue of 1874, as compared with 1873, amounting to $5,688.97; of which $869.68 is apportioned to the Imperial Post Office, and $4,819.29 to the Colonial Government.

SHIPPING.

2. In the grand total of the arrivals and departures of every class of vessel trading with the Port, there is a great falling off, amounting to 10,072 vessels and 654,764 tons. Of this decrease, 96.8 per cent of vessels and 63.4 per cent of tons are due to the falling off of the trade in native bottoms, leaving 3.2 per cent of vessels and 36.6 per cent of tons due to the decrease in tonnage arriving and leaving in foreign bottoms. The tonnage of foreign vessels as at present constructed, gives but an uncertain idea of the quantity of goods which are either landed here, or pass through in the same ship en route to the more Northern Ports: for we find the carrying capacity of the larger class of steamers much in excess of their Register tonnage.

3. Although the disparity between the measurement and carrying capacity of vessels will, in a degree, account for the great decrease in tonnage in foreign bottoms, and the Typhoon of last Sep- tember will account for some of the very serious reduction in the number of Junks frequenting the Port, there is no doubt but that the trade with the Colony has considerably diminished during the last three years.

4. The search of native vessels leaving or approaching this Port has not been relaxed by the Chinese Cruisers, although the complaints, at one time so frequent, have not of late been heard. This may be accounted for by the traders, seeing they have to give way to the squeezes of the Customs' Cruisers and get but small satisfaction from the Chinese Authorities when complaining, quietly submitting themselves to what they cannot avoid. Whether this has any material effect on the trade and consequent prosperity of the Colony is a matter of dispute, but certain it is that, taking the

  year 1867 as a starting point, it being the year in which this Government took cognisance of the arrivals and departures of Junks, the rise of that trade was steady until it reached its culminating point in May 1872, and, it has since then as steadily gone downwards. A glimpse at the accom- panying diagram will render this clearer than any wordy description.

5. There has been an increase in the trade between this Port and Siam, probably in a measure due to the introduction of steam-vessels into that trade. The old and nearly worn out sailing vessels at one time employed in the Siamese trade are fast disappearing. There has also been an increase in the number and tonnage of vessels arriving from India and Singapore, Australia and New Zealand, as also a slight rise in the tonnage from the Philippine Islands. The principal decrease is of vessels and tonnage from Great Britain, Coast of China and Formosa, Cochin China and Japan.

6. Of the tonnage of the different classes of vessels arriving at this Port, 38 per cent are steamers, 10 per cent are foreign sailing vessels, and 52 per cent are Junks. Of the steam-ships, 73.5 per cent were British, 11.8 per cent French, 5.8 per cent American, 4.6 per cent German; the remainder being made up of Spanish, Chinese and steamers of other nations. Of sailing vessels, exclusive of Junks, 49 per cent of tons, or nearly the half, are British, and 51 per cent are foreign.

7. In my last Report, I alluded to the probability of the lights to mark Cape d'Aguilar, Green Island, and Cape Collinson being in their places before the close of 1874. The late arrival of the materials from England has delayed this, but, the lanterns for Cape d'Aguilar and Green Island having arrived, there is every likelihood that the light on Cape d'Aguilar will be exhibited on the 16th April, and that on Green Island on the 1st May next. The light for Cape Collinson has not yet

arrived.

8. The year 1874 has been a most disastrous one to shipping in all parts of the world. Here, and in the neighbourhood, we have the following casualities to record:

122

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 27TH MARCH, 1875.

9. A Typhoon of unusual violence visited this place on the morning of the 23rd September last, causing a destruction of ships and loss of life fortunately not of frequent occurrence in this Colony.

10. The total destruction of and loss of many lives on board the British steamer Mongol in the neighbourhood of the Port on the 12th December.

11. The total loss by fire of the United States' Mail Steamer Japan on the 17th December, and loss of life on board of that ship, a few miles from here. These are most distressing occurrences to record in one year.

12. I reported fully on the Typhoon in October last, but attach that document to this Report as it may perhaps be thought a fitting supplement to the usual Returns published in the Colony's Blue Book.

13. A Marine Court enquired into the circumstances attending the loss of the Mongol, which vessel went down a few minutes after she struck on a well known rock, marked on the Admiralty Chart, near the South Nine Pin Island. The Master and Chief Officer being drowned, the Court thought it advisable not to offer any opinion as to the faultiness or otherwise of those answerable for this serious calamity. The evidence appeared in the public press, and a copy was, in the usual way, forwarded to the Board of Trade.

14. An enquiry in the matter of the loss by fire of the Japan was held at the United States' Consulate, resulting in the full acquittal of the Master, and censuring the Chief Engineer. A few remarks on this loss will be found in the report on Emigration for the year.

EMIGRATION.

15. The gross total number of Emigrants leaving here in 1874 is 3,098 more than were carried in the preceding year. Of males, there were 3,497 more, but there has happily been a decrease of children and female adults, the reasons for which will appear further on.

The increase of males has been to the Australian Colonies, Bangkok, and the Straits Settlements. The last named Colony takes a large number of men for the purpose of working the tin mines in that Settlement and its neighbourhood.

16. No reports of accidents to Emigrant Ships leaving this Port have been made for a long period. All the vessels appear to have made fair average passages and with few deaths or much disease. The latter is probably, in some measure, attributable to the great care which is taken in the selection of good Chinese Surgeons for charge of the ships that have no European trained Medical men on board.

17. Agents from Queensland and other British Colonies have shown a desire to procure Chinese labour under contract, but the difficulties attending such a system are so great that but little en- couragement can be held out to persons requiring this class of labour. Firstly comes the difficulty of obtaining bona fide volunteers. Secondly, having obtained them, the difficulty of keeping them is very great, as Chinese will often go to a Lodging House, remain there for a few days, and then, after being well fed, say they do not wish to emigrate. Thirdly, it has often happened that Emigrants have signed their contracts freely enough, and after receiving an advance of wages (and none can be got to sign a contract without this stipulation) they have gambled their money away and then declined to proceed. Some Chinese professed gamblers have been known to embark, and, during the few days they have been on board waiting to sail, have won the money of the really intending Emigrants, and have then repaid their own advances out of their winnings and gone on shore.

18. These difficulties, together with the large expense which attends the procuring contract labour, and the probability of the Emigrants deserting on their arrival at their destination, have been found so great that the Agents have, for the present, withdrawn from the attempt to obtain the labour of which the Australian Colonies seem so much in need.

19. The Emigration of females is on the decrease. 1,104 women and girls have emigrated during the

year as against 1,542 that left here in 1873. I fear there can be little doubt but that the greater proportion of these women and girls were purchased on the mainland and exported for pur- poses of prostitution. These unfortunate women are instructed as to the answers they are to give when being questioned as to their willingness to emigrate, but either from fear of their purchasers, or from a callousness as to what their future may be, it is most difficult to obtain the truth from them. It has been for a long time the desire of this Government to endeavour to put a stop to this practice, but the Chinese notions of morality, and the estimation in which the women are held, are so low that they see no harm in this disgraceful traffic,

20. In endeavouring to check this practice I have received much valuable assistance from the Registrar General, whose knowledge of the Chinese language and the character of the people enables him to detect, readily, the cases of females who are purchased for immoral purposes, but, if the intending Emigrant expresses her desire to proceed, and they too frequently feel themselves in honor bound to their purchasers, the Government is powerless to stop them. But very few instances have occurred of females confessing that they had been improperly procured and were unwilling to go. In such cases, the persons concerned have at once been handed over to the Police Court for trial. The questioning of the female Emigrants is of so searching a nature that the people concerned in procuring the women have been discouraged in their traffic, hence the decrease of female Emigration alluded to in a previous paragraph.

21. The Chinese Committee of the Chinese Hospital take great interest in this matter, and pre- sented a petition to the Government praying that some more effective means might be devised for staying

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 27TH MARCH, 1875.

123

the Emigration of purchased females. A Commission investigated the matter; some of the Members of the Chinese Committee were invited to be present at the examination of the intending female Emigrants at this Office, and candidly admitted that nothing further could be done, observing that, if women left Hongkong unwillingly after undergoing the examination made by the proper Officers, they had themselves alone to blame.

22. The Commission recommended that an Ordinance should be passed to meet the cases of females purchased out of the Colony and brought in to be shipped away for purposes of prostitution.

  23. It will be observed in the Returns that the number of Chinese brought to this Port from Manila and Singapore is much in excess of the number leaving Hongkong for those places. This is in consequence of the large direct Emigration to Manila and Singapore from Amoy and Swatow. These people, on their return to their native land, have to come here first, whence they take passages by Junk or Coast Steamer for their homes.

  24. The deplorable loss by fire of the United States' Pacific Mail Steam-ship Japan, 4,351 tons register, on the 17th December last, in Latitude 22° 45′ N. and Longitude 116° 36′ E. while on her voyage from San Francisco to this Port vi? Yokohama in Japan, has to be reported. This vessel had a mixed crew (Americans and Chinese) of 136 persons, and there were 424 Chinese passengers on board.

When about 135 miles from here she caught fire near to, or in the fore coal bunker. In spite of the admirable arrangements of steam pumps which these ships possess, the fire spread so rapidly that in a very short time communication between the fore and after parts of the vessel was cut off by flame. The Japan had boats and rafts calculated to hold 650 persons, which were all in the water with the exception of one large boat secured immediately abreast the fire. She was also supplied with 1,500 life preservers distributed in various parts of the ship ready for It is impossible to say with accuracy the numbers lost and saved, as some of the Chinese pas- sengers were picked up floating on pieces of the wreck and conveyed in native boats to the land, which was but 13 miles distant. The Master's estimate was that about 200 Chinese and 3 Americans lost their lives. The matter was investigated at the United States' Consulate when the Master was honourably acquitted of all blame, and the Chief Engineer was censured.

use.

25. The great loss of life on board the Japan, which has been, I fear, rather under estimated than over, leads to reflection on what would have been the result had the Japan had her full complement of passengers on board, 1,430; for it is impossible that a ship can carry boats for so large a number of people. This ship had her full complement of boats and rafts, yet still the loss of life was great. Most of the Chinese passengers were possessed of large sums of money in dollars which they attached to their persons, and many of them were drowned in consequence.

  26. The cause of the fire is attributed to the spontaneous combustion of coals, in the fore bunker of the ship, which had been taken on board in a wet condition at Yokohama; but as this Government had nothing to do with the enquiry which was held, I can form no opinion of the origin of the fire, except so far as the published evidence could inform me. It was found that it was no part of the Company's instructions that the temperature of the several coal bunkers should be tested at stated intervals. Had such a rule obtained on board, probably the fire and consequent loss of the ship and lives might have been avoided.

REGISTRY OF SHIPPING.

  27. Fifteen vessels have been registered; twenty registers have been cancelled, and thirty-four other transactions, such as mortgages, &c., have been recorded by this Department during the year. This is the usual average work done, but it will shortly be lessened, probably by one half, as a Registry Office is about to be established at Shanghai.

28. The fees collected under this head amount to $435.74.

MARINE MAGISTRATE'S COURT.

29. There is a reduction of 47 per cent in the number of Defendants brought before this Court, due chiefly to the short stay of the ships in Port.

Appendix No. 1.

HARBOR DEPARTMENT, HONGKONG, 14th October, 1874.

137

SIR,For the information of His Excellency the Governor, I have the honor to transmit a Report of the Typhoon and of the principal casualties that occurred in this Harbor on the morning of the 23rd ultimo.

The morning of the 22nd commenced fine, with the Barometer at 29.85-the average range of the previous four days. As the day advanced, the atmosphere became unsettled, and, notwithstanding that the wind was North West it was accompanied by an oppressive heat, the Thermometer being 85° Farhenheit.

The Barometer began to fall at noon and steadily went down, until at 4 P.M. it was 29.74.

The wind which at this time was about North North West, began to blow in fitful gusts across the Harbor, and it became evident that a Typhoon was approaching.

The Steam-launch was sent round to warn the Junks that they must at once seek shelter in Kowloon Bay, on the North side of the Harbor. With the exception of five, they all left their anchorage; these subsequently became wrecks at West Point.

The Barometer continued to fall slowly until 10.30 P.M., when it stood at 29.40, the wind having veered to North. Between 10.30 P.M. and 2 A.M., the Barometer fell upwards of half an inch and stood at 28.88-its lowest range-for about an hour.

At 2 A.M., the wind suddenly shifted to North East and then to East North East and blew with terrible violence. The strength of the wind brought an immense volume of water into the Harbor, not a tidal wave, but a rapid rise which continued for about an hour flooding the Praya and ground floors of houses to a height of four and five feet for some distance inshore.

Although according to ordinary calculation it should have been low water at two o'clock; by three, the water had risen to from five to six feet above its high water level, or a rise of about ten feet had taken place.

As the storm subsided, the wind gradually veered to South East and by 7 A.M. it was fine.

Under such circumstances it is not surprising that the loss of Shipping and Junks should have been so much greater than it has been during any previous Typhoon. But few vessels held on to their anchors without dragging, and many that would otherwise have remained stationary were fouled by other ships and dragged also-in some instances to go down together.

The Master of the British Barque Falcon tells me that his ship dragged on to what he supposes was the British Barque Malvern; that the collision stove the Falcon's stern in, but the Malvern's bows suffered so badly that she went down head foremost with all hands on board just after the Falcon had drifted clear of her.

Another instance is recorded of the German Barque Maury fouling the German Barque Aldebaran causing her to sink; the crew of the latter vessel got on board the Maury, but she was so damaged, that, after being fouled by two Steamers, she also sank, but later in the day, the crew escaping by means of their boats after the storm had subsided." One vessel, however, the British Barque Charlotte Andrews, held to her anchors, although she had been fouled by other craft, and saw nine vessels drift past her.

A

It is painful to report that two Spanish Steamers are lying sunk alongside the sea wall at the centre of the City. strict regard to the readings of the Barometer and the general appearance of the weather should have warned the Captains of those vessels to seek shelter the evening before the Typhoon set in.

The German Barque Everhard was thrown over a reef of rocks on to a sandy beach on the North East point of Lantao; and a Siamese Brig drifted, ultimately becoming a total wreck on the Island of Cheang Chow Ching.

The cases above described are inserted with a view to showing the manner in which the storm acted on some of the vessels.

I am of opinion that the casualties to the British and foreign shipping would not have been so great had more of the vessels been provided with heavier anchors; and had cable been veered at an earlier stage of the storm than was apparently done. But the sudden shiftings of the wind and the simultaneous rise of tide were doubtless the principal causes of the deplorable losses afloat.

Junks and smaller boats are so ill provided with ground tackle, that the rise of the water was of itself enough to cause their anchors to start from their holding ground.

No place was safe for this kind of craft. Stone Cutters' Island and Kowloon Bays, usually such safe harbors of refuge during a Typhoon, seem to have availed them nothing, the beaches of these places being literally strewed with wreck.

The loss of life is most distressing. Of British and foreign shipping alone, there is an estimated loss of 200 persons composed of all classes and nationalities.

I append a Report of the losses sustained by Chinese Junks as far as they could be ascertained, but this does not by any means show the terrible havoc which the Typhoon has made with this description of vessel. I have only been enabled to count vessels stranded and those sunk having their masts above water. Hundreds of smaller Junks and boats must have been driven out to sea or gone down in the Harbor of which nothing can ever be known.

From the log books of ships that have experienced this Typhoon at sea and where the Masters have registered the readings of their Barometers, I have been able to ascertain that the Typhoon blew with great violence in the neighbourhood of the Pratas Shoal, the British ship Onward, the American ship Highlander, and German barque Amanda having been in it between the hours of 4 and 6 P.M., of the 22nd. The storm travelled thence in a North-Westerly direction, the Spanish steamer Formosa in Latitude 20° 50′ North and Longitude 115° 20′ East, being on its Western limit. The centre passed but just South of Hongkong at about 2 A.M. of the 23rd, its full burst being apparently expended at Macao, where it raged at about 4 A.M., the Barometer at that place then registering 27.95, or nearly one inch lower than it was at Hongkong. The Onward did not suffer much in this Typhoon, but on the 29th when about 60 miles East of the South end of Formosa she encountered another storm necessitating the cutting away of the main mast and her return to this port to repair damages.

The recent Typhoon is without doubt the severest that has ever visited this Colony, whether we judge by the losses afloat or on shore. The loss of life in the Junk return is but an approximation of what has occurred; that of the British and foreing shipping is, I think, tolerably accurate as the numbers of original crews and of persons saved could more readily be obtained; but, where passengers were on board such vessels, the returns may not be so reliable.

A Report of this nature is generally accompanied by some suggestion to meet the exigencies of similar casualties should they visit us.

To the Captains of ships visiting this Port, who are as capable of judging of the weather as I am, I can only offer the suggestion that the Barometer is an unfailing indicator of what is approaching or what is passing our neighbourhood. With good ground tackle; a clear hawse; and plenty of cable, veered before the storm is at its height; almost any British or foreign built vessel should be able to ride out a Typhoon in this Harbor.

The Department warns Junks of the probability of dangerous weather, but with the indifferent provision Chinese make for such emergencies, it is no wonder there is always so much destruction and loss of life amongst them.

I have the honor to be,

Your most obedient Servant,

Sir,

The Honorable J. GARDINER AUSTIN,

Colonial Secretary.
